    I've been going back and forth on this topic for a while. And now, hopefully this will be the last time I talk about the show in general.

    Sure, most of us have seen the show and thought it was either awesome, a piece of crap, or were neutral. For all you guys who are long-time Sonic fans who bashed on it and thought it was the worst thing since Sonic '06... Have you realized that this show is targeted for kids?
   
    I did my research. The Sonic Boom TV show is meant to be for kids from the age of 12 and under. Why is this important? I figured that the elements that the average child would find humorous would be different from our sense of humor, since our minds are more developed than children. For example, I loved a show called "Skunk Fu" as a kid. A couple of months ago I decided to look at one of the episodes again, and I didn't get as amused as I did when I was 9 years old or so.
    Most of us obviously crave more than just humor in a show, but comedy is what attracts most kids since I doubt that they would find interest in serious-toned plots.
   
    Despite the humor levels, I'm sure that we're all older than 12. I'm 16. If I dislike Sonic Boom so much then I shouldn't be watching it since it's not meant to be for me. All the people who called out on the show, saying how bad it was, (including myself) they had wasted their time complaining about a show that wasn't even meant to please their generation. 
    The originality, music, character personalities, the plot itself, kids don't give a crap about that stuff. They just want to sit down and enjoy the program. There's a good chance that they haven't even got to that level in school when they're taught about good story plots and details. In fact, I bet many don't have a long history of liking Sonic like we do. Sonic Boom just may be the gateway into the Sonic fandom for some of them. (Similar to how I discovered Sonic X in 2003.) 
    We on the other hand, we as teens/adults prefer more logical, understandable elements with less jokes that seem to insult our intelligence. We can be entertained with more types of genres other than comedy. Unlike kids, we can take interest in drama, thrill and romance etc. Sonic Boom is basically nothing but mostly jokes and last-minute action because the kids might get bored if they had a decent conversation scene. I know that when I was a kid, I hated it when the characters would sit there for a minute and just talk with no action at all. (Sonic X had these moments, especially involving Chris.)
   
    If you like the show and you're older than 12, that's okay. Way to have an open mind of interest. :aww:
    So when it comes to these shows that air on CartoonNetwork, nickelodeon, or any other kids-based channel, we should pay attention to the target audience that the creators of the shows want to get to, since it might not be as equally entertaining for us older people.
   
    Now, back to Sonic Boom. Since I know how it is now and what to possibly expect, I'll still watch it to gain knowledge on the trivial facts that appear on the show. I find them rather interesting. For example, Sonic owns a coconut husk collection, Tails can cook, Knuckles can play the piano but can't read. You know, that type of stuff. I find the little things like that useful for leisure fanfictions (the stories when the characters aren't out on duty for the whole time). I care about canon accuracy that much... ^^;

Anyhow, thanks for reading! :)

I am an anthropomorphic fanartist and a throwback artist "because I'm late like that" :XD:
My favorite art tool is MS Paint (been drawing with it since 2009); now I'm also trying to get used to Photoshop, a more modern art tool.
I am a semi-fanfiction writer, since I usually add drawings that define each divided section of it.

I also host a Q&A section in my gallery for my FCs (fan characters) where fellow deviants ask them questions and I draw out their response (as long as it's appropriate.) I try to answer them as soon as I gain enough motivation to draw it out nicely; so it won't end up looking aggravated and lazy.
However, I DO NOT TAKE FLAT-OUT REQUESTS. I've been asked this question so many times and I have nowhere else to put this message.
I also like to write rant journals (mainly about DA or art related topics that I feel concerned about.)


My FCs:
Angela Cat -Cats Don't Dance
Dymonde Eryka- Ratchet and Clank
An-D Emreld- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012)
Lillia Chrysan- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003)
Marienne Frank- Sly Cooper
Tailia Crosefir - Lackadaisy
Crowe - Storm Hawks
Sydney the Hedgehog- Sonic the Hedgehog
NEW Seth the Hedgehog- Sonic the Hedgehog
My anthropomorphic style of Lombax Clank will count too.

Just in case, I'll add my persona, Artsi Cat to the ask list.
If you want to ask me questions, they should involve "me" having to interact with any canon characters I'm familiar with; just like the FCs. (For example, the deviation involving me with Carmelita) One thing about the artist fursona, she can cross over into anything without logical judgement; since I pretty much crossed over into everything that I took interest in and drew. And she'll stay as a anthropomorphic cat no matter what style.

For those who want to ask my FCs (and my fursona) questions, you can comment them on my profile page, any askFC deviations, the FC's bio or the AskMyFCs folder in my gallery. Just be specific on who you are asking.
If you want to ask any of my FCs a question involving your FC, please add a link to your FC with a bio so I can have an idea on what your character is like and won't be shooting in the dark once I get to yours. It keeps me from wasting time when I get around to answering it.

You made it seem like she was a canon character at first; I knew I never heard that name on the show. :XD:

By cartoon, do you mean comic series or something?
Since you mentioned this character, I had to check your profile to see if you had a bio for her. 
Unless you have made an updated one, the one I found was very confusing to read. 
Which series does your FC originate from? She seems to jump from one series to another, (The Incredibles, Skunk Fu, the Loonatics etc). You should have your character stick to one series when it comes to creating bios and stories.
Plus, the fact that you made her immortal makes her kind of "Mary Sue-ish" (an all powerful character superior to the canon characters and has no flaws). And since she is immortal, wouldn't that mean that she will live alongside Luxy, her descendant? In fact, should Luxy even exist since Lindsey is immortal?
